Wonder why everyone says you need to protect your Intellectual Property? Or why IP lawyers can justify such huge fees for helping you do so? Or how lean mean startups (like you), with a limited budget, can create tangible valuable IP without breaking the bank?

Wonder no more. Peter Williams and Raj Singh (IP maven and investor respectively) will explain the upside of having an IP strategy – the how, what, when and where, both from the inventor/entrepreneur and the investor perspective.

This is NOT a legal briefing, but rather an event to guide you on how to think about creating, developing and leveraging your concepts. If you think your company is valuable, you will know how to make it even more so after this event.

Program Details:
12:30pm – 1:00pm Registration and Networking
1:00pm – 1:45pm Panel Discussion
1:45pm – 3:30pm Pitch Session (3 minutes each)
3:30pm Annoucement of 3 finalists, who will each receive a 3-hr free IP consultation with the renewed K&L Gates IP team
